I have eaten dinner from their salad/hot bar before, but I was so excited to find a great surprise tonight!
Apparently, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during November, they’re making a Thanksgiving feast. Talk about comfort food.
Tonight I had a great grilled breast of free range chicken, baked butternut squash, collard greens and turnips, a little scoop of a long grain wild rice, cranberry and walnut medley (holy crap, YUM!) and a little salad to top it off.
In addition to my menu, they also had kale and an apple crisp thing. Every day they have a soup and salad bar with different selections. Today’s soups were Veggie Fajita Chili and Chicken Noodle soup.
For those of you who are freaked out by organic food or health food, this is worth setting aside your fear. Your plate is weighed, and the cost is $6.99 per pound. I know it’s a little pricey, but the health benefits far outweigh what you’re paying.
They also have a coffee, tea and smoothie bar, and they have already prepared dishes you can pick up. I’ve heard their macaroni and cheese is to die for.
I know you typically don’t think about Earth Fare when you’re finding a place to eat, but go check out the cafe. You can read a magazine or chat while you’re there.
After you eat, browse around the store. It’s so cool! All the employees are very knowledgeable, and they are willing to help you in any way they can.
So, before you go home for the holidays, stop by Earth Fare on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday for some of Mamma’s lovin’.
